For years I derided Apples’s .Mac and with their recent relaunch of the web service as MobileMe they appear to have fixed a number of my criticisms. Worth checking out if you use a Mac but may not be a compelling choice if you are already entrenched in a Gmail/ Online storage set-up. I may give the free trial a try to see if it’s useful for my family.
MobileMe keeps all of your information in an online server, or “cloud.” So no matter where you go or what device you use, everything is always in sync.
At me.com, you can check your email, change your calendar, and edit your contacts. You can also share photos and documents. Accessible anywhere, me.com is an ad-free suite of web applications — Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Gallery, and iDisk — that are elegant and easy to use.
